Dutch Treat

June and I are in Holland. Two days in Amsterdam, two days in Enschede and Utrecht and a final day in Leyden. I'm sponsored by SLO, an interesting institution that does curriculum development for schools across the country. Lots of prior experience with WebQuests here and plenty of interest in doing more.

In Amsterdam we visited the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, caught a bit of the Ing Amsterdam Marathon, ate an amazing rijsttafel, and of course window shopped in the Red Light district.

We're having a great time. The food is fantastic and the people we're meeting are great fun to be with. This is a country I want to come back to.

Welcome to the Nethterlands. You'll probably will see some interesting things with the SLO. A few website that (I think) you just have to see are: www.webkwestie.nl and www.webquest.nl. They're in Dutch but you can get the idea of it. Anothter site (also in Dutch) is www.earthquest.nl and www.werkenmetgoogleearth.nl. Here you can find earthquest, that is a webquest in combination with Google Earth.
